    PDXPUG: PUDL: Portland Urban Data Lake

    Iovation

    Presented by: Dr. Kristin Tufte

    This talk will describe work in Smart Cities in the Portland region. We’ll begin with the framework and motivation for the Smart Cities work and the question What is a Smart City? We’ll discuss Portland’s approach to Smart Cities, provide some historical context and then give an overview of ongoing Smart Cities projects including work on AV policy, the Portland Urban Data Lake, new sensors and earthquake resilience. The goal of the talk is to give the audience an overview of the work being done in Portland to bring a human face to data and technology and to inspire question and discussion.

    Dr. Tufte is actively involved in Portland’s Smart Cities work and was the data lead on the City of Portland’s Smart Cities proposal. Dr. Tufte has collaborated closely with transportation agencies in the Portland-Vancouver area for the past ten years and directs PORTAL — the regional transportation data archive. Dr. Tufte is a member of the Transportation Research Board’s Urban Data Committee, co-chairing its Urban Big Data subcommittee and Portland Global Cities Team Challenge Action Cluster. Dr. Tufte has a PhD in Database Management from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Dr. Tufte’s passion is using data and technology to change people’s lives, especially those in traditionally underserved communities.

    PDX Postgres meetup

    Iovation

    Ahoy database folk! Time for another meetup and more container chit chat. Yeah yeah, you, like me, have heard that you shouldn’t run databases in containers. Well without throwing all caution to the wind, I’m hoping to show you guys some container workflows with Postgres that I’ve been using lately. We’ll talk a bit about why you haven’t been running databases in containers, then walk through some development work flows with Postgres, and lastly look at options for deploying and running persistent databases in containers.

    ———

    PDXPUG: Automatic For The People

    Iovation

    Want automated high availability PostgreSQL without relying on someone else's cloud service? It's possible today, and easier than you think; we just need a little container orchestration pixiedust, and your DBAs can take the weekend off.

    Josh Berkus will explain the current state of HA Postgres services on Kubernetes/OpenShift, introducing the several projects in this area, and then going into a deep dive on Patroni/Spilo. He'll bring you up to date on the new "Kube-native" Patroni, and work expected in the future. With live demos!


    Josh Berkus helps manage the Kubernetes community for Red Hat. He is a "hacker emeritus" for PostgreSQL. He lives in NE Portland with a large black cat, a pottery studio, and a librarian.

    PDXPUG: August meeting

    Iovation

    Portland Postgres Users Group

    In this presentation we will grapple with the un-joinable itself, and see if we may not join it after all. The presentation explores the record linking problem (entity resolution) in the context of PostgreSQL. This problem generally arises when you have multiple data sources (or duplicates) without a reliable key to resolve multiple records to the same entity. First the problem is explored, then a general approach to developing a solution is presented, and finally there will be some pro tips.

    When: 6-8pm Thu Feb 19, 2015
    Where: Iovation
    Who: David Kerr
    What: Using Bucardo to Migrate your Pg database to RDS with minimal downtime

    As a followup to January’s RDS discussion, Dave Kerr works through strategies to move your existing Postgres database into RDS.

    Using Bucardo and Master/Master Replication we can achieve a migration to RDS with minimal or no downtime.

    Dave will show some tools and techniques so help facilitate this transition as well as go over the idiosyncrasies of using Bucardo with RDS.

    PDXPUG: January meeting

    Iovation

    When: 6-8pm Thu Jan 15, 2015 Where: Iovation Who: Gabrielle Roth What: RDS Postgres

    Amazon integrated Postgres into their general Relational Database Services (RDS) offerings July 1, 2014. RDS offers automatic failover, scalability, and easy configuration, plus Amazon handles all the patching and upgrades for you! Their SDK supports many languages and includes a robust CLI, if you want to automate management of your deployments. They also support several popular Postgres extensions.

    Of course, since it’s a managed service, you can’t do everything you might expect or want to. In this talk, I’ll discuss the fun, the quirky, and the downright maddening features I’ve discovered working with production RDS deployments. Come find out what it’s like to use RDS Postgres day-to-day.

    The building is on the Green & Yellow Max lines. Underground bike parking is available in the parking garage; outdoors all around the block in the usual spots.

    We’ll go to Huber’s for after-meeting socializing.

    See you there!

    When: 7-9pm Thu Sep 18, 2014 Where: Iovation Who: Jay Riddle What: Using Postgresql to enable Google like Search

    Jay’s been experimenting with Pg’s full text search capabilities. At our next meeting, he’ll cover the following: * Brief intro on why Google like search capabilities are fun. * Introduce Postgresql full text abilities. Discuss at a high level why a full text index may be a bit heavier than a normal index. * Look at possible solutions for use cases where the data you want to index is spread across multiple columns and multiple tables.

    Jay Riddle is a database administrator at Viewpoint software.

    Our meeting will be held at Iovation, on the 32nd floor of the US Bancorp Tower at 111 SW 5th (5th & Oak). It’s right on the Green & Yellow Max lines. Underground bike parking is available in the parking garage; outdoors all around the block in the usual spots. No bikes in the office, sorry!

    PDXPUG: Autovacuum and You

    Iovation

    Autovacuum’s like a Roomba, right? You just turn it on and it does all the work for you. Well, not quite – for one, your pets can’t ride around on it – and occasionally it may get stuck in a (figurative) corner. In this talk, we’ll discuss vacuum, analyze, and their daemonic counterparts: how to adjust them to perform appropriately*, and perhaps more importantly, what the heck are they actually doing?

    This is a beginner-to-intermediate level talk, but you will learn something new about vacuuming, regardless.** –

    Gabrielle Roth is a consultant with EnterpriseDB. She specializes in network, database, and system monitoring, as well as abusing SQL.

    After-meeting beer location: Huber’s, the oldest bar in Portland. See you there!
